Thanks very much, Stbalbach and Garthus, for your help and comments. In fact I found after posting that the 'sort results by date' filter seemed to work in this case. Of course I agree with both of you that the main aim must be to get as much material on IA as possible, but the year and issue of a journal are fairly crucial, and should always be tagged so as to come up on the search results page, surely. Mine was really a plea for a consistent, and helpful, treatment of journal entries.

JFLL,

You are 100% correct, the poster merely has to place the year in the date field, for example, one of my postings:

http://www.archive.org/details/The_Primary_Class_11_2_13

This item has a volume, number and article; identification. By sticking this info in the title and keyword search your search would easily bring up the item with only partial information.
